| Help for Haiti
|It seems like all of us are glued to the tv or computer watching the devastation in Haiti.
It's horrific. I wish I could be on a plane to go help, but the news isn't asking for SAHMs with BAs in English. So instead I open my pocketbook.
Granted, I haven't opened it very wide ($10 through Yele), but it's something. And little bits can add up.
I donated all the swagbucks I could (and you can use your three A7X bucks from that code a while back through here Here's what they're doing:
SwagNation has shown an outpouring of sympathy across all our online communities, asking how they can help. Here's your chance to use your Swag Bucks to support a great cause. Please consider donating some of your Swag Bucks to our Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. All Swag Bucks we collect will go directly toward a donations to three major relief organizations:
* American Red Cross
* Doctors Without Borders
* Yele.org (Wyclef Jean's relief effort)
If they can get to one million swagbucks then they will donate $100,000.
Then there's the blog effort.
Bargain Briana is donating $5 for every blog post linked to her site. Or 0.25 per comment left on that post.
Money Saving Mom, is donating $10 to Compassion’s outreach in Haiti, for each link
$5 Dollar Dinners is donating $5 per comment or link.
Common Sense With Money, is donating $0.25 per comment on her post for Haiti.
So hopefully that helps.
Ziggy wanted to remind people to donate here within your own community as well. He had a bit of a ranting moment as he went on about how it takes a disaster to get people to donate. So help those hurting in your community if you can with clothing and food donations.
Also check that your donation is being used well by the organization that you donate to!
